Featuring Maryon Stewart (moderator), Dr. Deanna Minich, Dr. Maria Sophocles & Dr. Catherine Darley


Hot flashes, anxiety, and insomnia are some of the most common symptoms women experience when they reach midlife. According to our survey "What Women Want," 96% of women feel unprepared and don't know where to begin. When women enter perimenopause, it can be even more confusing as many of them were not expecting to experience changes in their body prior to their forties.

There is plenty of research to show that dietary and lifestyle changes, as well as cutting-edge technology, can significantly help to alleviate symptoms and help us feel comfortable.

During this panel discussion, Maryon Stewart, often referred to as the Pioneer of the Natural Menopause Movement and Founder of Femmar Health, is joined by Dr. Deanna Minich, a nutritional scientist with over 20 years of experience, Dr. Maria Sophocles, an experienced OB/GYN, and Dr. Catherine Darley, the well-known sleep doctor. Together, they are focusing on the best ways to alleviate hot flashes and night sweats and get back to sleeping peacefully.
